cpan2pkg - generating native linux packages from cpan
$ cpan2pkg -G $ cpan2pkg Module::Foo Module::Bar ... $ cpan2pkg --help
Purpose of the program
This script is a glue application around cpan2dist, interacting with your upstream distribution. When calling this script, it will:
check whether it's alrady packaged by your vendor, and install from it if that's the case.
otherwise, build a native package with cpan2dist - this implies that there is a working
CPANPLUS::Distbackend for your OS.
once built, import the module in upstream repository.
then submit module to upstream buildsystem.
And this, while dealing with dependencies, all the way long, repeating steps over and over as needed.
Read this blog entry for this module rationale.
